easy there, killer, these things can take a little time. Can't expect an answer to every question in 10 minutes. You end up getting it worked out?

Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

Nope, hasn't been worked out. Am hoping someone can send a pic, or has a link to an 81 vacuum diagram. Sorry, but I have been through 2 carbs, and she still is having issues. She wants to choke up, and idle at 3k.

Found some info that said that the Mitchell Automotive Manuals had very good emissions and vacuum hose diagrams and that most libraries have them for reference. You probably can copy pages that you need. Sorry, not the greatest support.

Get the Helms Shop Manual. Everything you need is in there.
